Tax increase for Wyanet residents By Becky Kramer news@bcrnews.com

WYANET — The Wyanet Village Board has voted unanimously to approve the 2014 tax levy which includes a 4.99 percent increase over last year. The board took the action at Tuesday’s meeting in city hall. The board also discussed the new dump truck with a snowplow which was purchased last month. The board approved

several new items for the truck including a back-up camera, snowplow lights and lettering on the side that says “Village of Wyanet”. Village Police Chief Todd Marquez gave his department’s monthly activity report. He also shared that he received a large donation of dog food, for his canine partner, from IMPACT. Resident Clarence Rich approached the board with concerns about his sewer. Rich

explained he has had repeated problems and he believes the trouble is in the main line and not his personal line. The board will use a camera to check the line for problems and then determine a solution for the problem. The board agreed to pay half of the plumber’s bill for repairs on the sewer line. Trustee John Swarzcewski presented several bids for a utility truck to replace the village’s current one. The board tabled the matter and will

continue to look into other options. In other news: • The village will begin accepting bids in February on several of the village’s older vehicles that they have recently replaced including the village dump truck, squad car and blazer. More information can be found on the village’s website. • The board approved the low bid for the replacement of the basement door on the vil-

lage hall and for the building of a wall in the water plant. The wall is needed to keep chemicals separated in the plant. • Trustee Joe Law will begin work on the skating rink as weather permits. The rink will be at the tennis courts again this year. The next regular meeting of the Wyanet Village Board will be at 6 p.m. Jan. 16 in the village hall. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

Buda denied grant for new well By Andrew Fisher news@bcrnews.com

BUDA — A disappointed Buda Village Board received word Monday night that a grant from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (IDCEC) to help fund a new well for the village was not approved this year. Of the 23 grants approved by the IDCEC this year, only one was for a project north of Springfield. The village needs a new well and associated building. A new well is being planned because one of the village’s three wells has failed due to age and use. There was hope that a grant would reduce stress on the village budget as a result of the costs of construction of a new well. During Monday’s meeting, Jack Kusek of McClure Engineering Associates presented cookies to the board as a thank-you for the work on the well project so far. According to the village attorney, the village is required to pass an ordinance to sell the old snowplow. With that requirement in mind, the village passed an ordinance which authorized the sale of personal village property by sealed bid. The personal village property is an old Ford F250 plow truck.

Cold weather? No problem! Katelynn Hartmann, 6, of Princeton is not intimidated by Tuesday afternoon’s frigid temperatures as she spends time outside creating some winter fun. Like Katelynn, people who don’t mind teeth-chattering temperatures and wind chills will have the opportunity to continue their outdoor fun as the cold temperatures are expected to continue for at least another day. Fortunately for the less hardy people, WQAD meteorologist James Zahara is predicting Bureau County could experience a “heat wave” on Friday as temperatures are expected to reach the freezing mark, at a balmy 32 degrees.

Flea market proposed in Milo Township By Donna Barker dbarker@bcrnews.com

PRINCETON — Proposed plans to build a flea market-type business in southern Bureau County got a little bit closer to reality when the Bureau County Board approved a necessary rezoning request needed to make it happen. At Tuesday’s county board meeting, developer Greg Hill addressed the board to explain the proposed business, which would be built on the Wyanet/Walnut Blacktop about one mile south of the Boyd’s Grove Church, which is located about six miles east of Bradford.

The goal is to set up a flea market/minimall type business, with individual vendors leasing out spaces, Hill said. The business would also include a farmers market and a restaurant, with a possible liquor license. During nice weather, there would be inflatable playgrounds for the kids and other activities, Hill said. “We’re just trying to have a spot for families to spend the day,” he said. The proposed business would be open only on weekends and would be housed in a Morton-type building to be constructed on the nearly five-acre site, Hill said. The existing residence on the property would continue to serve as a home, he said.

Jeff Sears, whose property neighbors the site, also addressed the board, saying he had several concerns about the rezoning request and proposed business. The proposed business would take away from the rural setting of the area. The business would cause increased traffic on the already heavily-traveled road which has a lot of heavy farm machinery traffic at times. The business could cause a public safety concern because of limited access to police at the rural site, the increased traffic and also the possible liquor license. Sears also questioned the viability of the proposed business and what would happen if the business was not successful.

PRINCETON — In its effort to continually increase its service to readers, the Bureau County Republican has launched a redesigned website. On Monday, Publisher Sam Fisher said the new website will provide readers with a bet-

same functionality as the desktop version,” he said. With its focus on local news, the new website will help readers to find the news that’s important to them through the use of better visual cues, Fisher said. The website’s responsive design ensures that readers will see the same important stories and headlines, regardless of the device they are using to visit bcrnews. com. The BCR website still features more local news, photographs and events from the Bureau County area than any other website, he said. Looking at specifics of the new design, Fisher said navigation across the top of the homepage has been improved to better guide readers

through the website, and story pages now include more opportunities for readers to access the top news on bcrnews.com without having to hit the back button. Also, bcrnews.com has made improvements to story commenting on the website, Fisher said. The new features allow story commenters to respond directly to a comment in a thread and allow for better self-policing of the comments section. Users can flag comments as offensive, off-topic or spam. If a comment is flagged enough times, it becomes hidden to users and subject to review. Commenters also can “like” a comment similar to “liking” a post on Facebook.

St. Lucia event to be held on Saturday By Dan Dwyer news@bcrnews.com

PRINCETON — The Celebration of St. Lucia, also known as the Festival of Lights, is celebrated traditionally on Dec. 13 in honor of one of the earliest Christian martyrs, St. Lucia, who was persecuted for her religious beliefs. Each year a ceremony is held in which a young girl is chosen to portray Lucia. She wears a white gown with a red sash and crown of candles and is followed by a court procession of other young females. The Evangelical Covenant Church uses their high school seniors to represent Lucia and her court. The candles that are carried by the girls represent the fire that refused to take her life when she was sentenced to burn. Lucia represents the triumph of light of the long, cold and dark nights of winter. The Evangelical Covenant Church holds its St. Lucia celebration the second Saturday of every December. This year it falls on Saturday. Originally the holiday was a celebration vaunting the Winter Solstice with large bonfires, which were meant to ward off evil spirits, while the modern celebration marks the beginning of the Christmas season and is used as a way to bring optimism and light into the darkest time of the year. “It’s a great way to start of the holiday season,”

“Our women’s ministries really are the ones who put this on. It’s by the women of our church and we count on a lot of people to help us.” Carol Nelson said Event Coordinator Carol Nelson. “People love the event so we want people to come and enjoy themselves.” St. Lucia’s Day is generally celebrated by Lutheran Nordic Peoples consisting of Danes, Swedes, Finns, Norwegians and their decedents here in the United States of America, whom are generally Evangelical Christians. The women of the church work vehemently to decorate, bake goods for a breakfast and a bake sale, prepare costumes, and set dining arrangements in the days few days leading up to the event. “Everything at the event is done by volunteers. The decorating, baking — everything really is done by the women of the church,” said Nelson. The reservation-only

breakfast will serve 160 people by waitresses in Swedish garb and will consist of ethnic Swedish dishes, including egg casserole, fruit soup, yeast braids, rye bread and cardamom rolls. “Our women’s ministries really are the ones who put this on. It’s by the women of our church and we count on a lot of people to help us,” said Nelson, “We’ve been doing it for 28 to 30 years now.” The holiday was originally celebrated on the Winter Solstice when the Julian calendar was in affect, but has since been celebrated on Dec. 13 every year since the adaptation of our current Gregorian calendar, which accounts for a leap year once every four years. St. Lucia’s name, Lucia, comes from the root of

the Latin word, “Lux,” meaning light, as it was celebrated on the Winter Solstice and represented the transition to longer days, therefore having more light in each day. “This year’s program will also include a performance that will include singing and possibly a violin performance,” said Nelson. The bake sale will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday followed by the reservationonly breakfast and performance at 9:30 a.m. The bake sale will resume after the breakfast and performance. While space is limited, reservations for the breakfast can still be made by calling Joan Eggers at 815875-2168. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

SPRING VALLEY — The bids for the tree clearing project, needed before the construction of an access road to Spring Valley’s west sewer interceptor, were presented at Monday’s council meeting. The two bidders on the project included Homer Tree Service of Lockport, with a bid price of $38,500, and Shearer Tree Service of Spring Valley, with a bid price of $80,000. City engineer Larry Good’s recommendation to the council was to go with the lowest bid. He confirmed Homer Tree Service has a significant amount of equipment and experience. Aldermen unanimously voted to accept the lowest bid with Homer Tree Service, however questioned the large gap between bid prices. Alderman Dave Pellegrini asked if there was any detail provided in the bids, because there was such a significant difference. “If there’s a clear scope of the project, how can we have such a difference,” he asked. Good said he asked a representative from Homer Tree Service about the cost difference, and he thought, because the company was more “mechanized” and could get in and do the project at a quicker rate, could be the reason for the lower bid price. Aldermen questioned the removal of debris, and whether it would be removed from the site

when the project took place. “Anything that’s in the area they’re clearing is required to be removed,” Good confirmed. Scott Shearer of Shearer Tree Service had previous bid on the tree clearing project under Mayor Cliff Banks, with a bid price of $19,000. He was present at the council’s Nov. 11 meeting, and it was discovered the tree clearing project he had bid on under Banks was a completely different scope of work than what is currently being planned. In other news, the council: • Congratulated Spring Valley Police Officer Sarah Kinkin, who was promoted to full-time officer at Monday’s meeting. Kinkin was born and raised in Spring Valley and is a graduate of Bradley University. She has worked part-time for Spring Valley Police Department since 2011. Police chief Kevin Sangston said Kinkin has done a great job and brings a highskilled level to the department. • Approved a $450 donation to Illinois Valley Public Action to Deliver (IVPADS) shelter. • Approved an ordinance that will make the intersection at Cleveland and Richards streets a four-way stop. • Approved the purchase of new computers for the city clerk’s office. Mayor Walt Marini confirmed the current computers are outdated, and becoming a burden on the daily jobs within the city clerk’s office. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

Flea market From Page 1 Sears asked the board to consider all these factors when making its decision. “Weigh the risks to the reward. If the rewards outweigh the risks, we’ll be more than happy to work with them and be good neighbors,” Sears said. “If the risks outweigh the rewards, I’d give the vote to not change the zoning.” Milo Township Supervisor Steve Cowser also addressed the board, saying the township board had voted not to approve the request. The township’s main concern was the area is an agriculture community and it seemed

On a personal note, Cowser said he shared many of the concerns expressed by Sears and others opposing the proposed business. As well, he had concern about liability, run-off issues and property devaluation for neighboring property owners. In presenting the rezoning request Tuesday evening to the county board, ESDA and Zoning Committee Chairman Marsha Lilley said the committee had a 3 to 3 split vote on whether to recommend the rezoning request to the full board.

After further discussion, the board approved the request to rezone the property, from Agriculture to Business-3, on a 12 to 8 vote. Voting in favor of the rezoning request were Joe Bassetti, Tom Dobrich, Marshann Entwhistle, Marsha Lilley, Jeff Mangrich, Mary Jane Marini, Mike Maynard, Bob McCook, Robin Rediger, Jim Thompson, Kristi Warren and Derek Whited. Voting against the rezoning were Robert Albrecht, Ralph Anderson, John Baracani, Jim Donarski, Dan Rabe, Connie Stetson, Loretta Volker and Dale Anderson. Comment on this story at www.bcrnews.com.

‘Take time to enjoy the view’ I have previously written columns about two of my grandsons, Jonathon and Brady. Those two have taught me many things about myself, about life and about the future. I have a COMMENTARY third grandson, Cole. Cole is still a baby, 9 months old, but I am already learning some special lessons from him. Cole is just starting to show some of his personality, and I look forward to him developing in the months and years to come. The thing that he, as a baby, is teaching me, is to observe and listen. As a newborn, he had pretty basic needs — food, love and a dry diaper. But, now, as he becomes more aware, it is wonderful to watch the world through his eyes. If I am holding Cole these days, his head is constantly moving. He sees and is enthralled by everything. If he sees a tiny piece of paper on the floor, he can spend 10 minutes trying to pick up that little piece of paper and then another 10 minutes feeling the texture and trying to see what he can do with it. A computer cord lays along the floor next to the couch at my house. He will work diligently to put his small face and tiny hand through a small opening just so he can touch and taste that cord. Of course, his efforts are to no avail as he would chew on that cord with his two little teeth and neither he nor the cord would be better for that tactile investigation. Grandma stops him before he gets that far. But, I do have to say, I enjoy watching his efforts. The thing that I notice the most with Cole is that he is constantly looking up or looking down. I try to follow his gaze up and see just what it is that he is looking at. It could be the sunlight shining on the wall, the blades of the ceiling fan or the stripes in the curtains. Sometimes it is hard to be sure. He is thrilled with the images on my IPad screen, especially the bright colors and the pictures of he and his other family members. His observations are never ending. If I feed Cole his lunch or dinner, his head is on a swivel. He watches every movement of other people around and twists and turns at every noise. Oh, he wants to eat, don’t be fooled, but hitting his mouth is like chasing a moth. Carrying Cole anywhere these days is a new experience. As you carry him, he is leaning over your arm looking at whatever is on the ground or the floor. He sees the cracks in the sidewalks, the blades of grass, the gravel in the driveway and everything else. His family all asks him what he is looking at. As of yet, he doesn’t respond. What is he seeing? He is seeing the world, the world through the eyes of a 9 month old. A world that, to him, is all shiny and new — a world that is full of wonder. I watch him, and I think to myself that I want to look at the world like he does. I want to look at everything as if it is the first time. I’m not sure that I can go back to looking at the world as Cole does. I think I am too “mature,” but I can try my best to enjoy the world around me just a little more. I am trying to look at the simple things and actually see them. For example, I recently walked up the granite front steps of the Bureau County Courthouse. The leaves had fallen and stacked up on those sparkly steps were leaves representing every color of autumn. They were beautiful, laying there before they were all trampled by those coming and going. I wished, at that moment, that I was an accomplished photographer. I would have taken a picture of those leaves, so I could always remember them. I stood at the window in the front of my house and watched the first snowflakes of November fly. You know, those snowflakes are amazing. Just as amazing, when I stop to look, as I felt they were when I was

Finding the star of Christmas We almost had a pseudo-crisis situation in my house on Saturday morning when I was decorating the living room for Christmas. My husband had carried up our big nativity box from the storage room in the basement and it was my job to arrange the nativity on the desk, in a place of honor. I carefully started pulling out the ceramic figurines, all wrapped in tissue and crumpled newspaper. The barn, about 2 feet high, took up a good portion of the desk. Though years old and not quite as firm as it once was, the barn still looks pretty good. Next I unwrapped the donkey, the sheep and a shepherd carrying a lamb on his shoulders. Then came the angel, Mary and Joseph, and the three wisemen. Each year, as I put up the nativity scene, I’m drawn to the wisemen. I have a special place in my heart for them because, after years of use, they are a bit imperfect. One of my wisemen has a broken leg. Another has a missing hand. The third wiseman is missing his gift for the baby Jesus. They are a motley crew of wisemen but I identify with them. How

Donna Barker COMMENTARY many years have I come to Christmas with the best intentions, only to find myself limping my way through the season and having forgotten a gift for baby Jesus? With my wisemen in place, I reach into the box for the star of the night, baby Jesus. I push aside the crumpled papers. I tilt the box to one side and then to the other. But baby Jesus is nowhere to be found. I rummage through the box again, taking out every piece of wrapping, but still no baby Jesus. I don’t necessarily know a lot about life, but I do know that without baby Jesus there is no nativity story. I begin to panic. Should I just take down the nativity set? Should I draw a baby Jesus on a piece of paper and tape the drawing in the manger? I decided neither option was a good one for me. So I begin a more earnest

search. I’m pretty sure baby Jesus has not left the house, unless one of my granddaughters carried him off sometime last year. After all I did find him in a toy box last January. So I go from room to room, looking in desk drawers and cupboards, toy boxes and jewelry boxes, in the junk drawer in the kitchen. I wonder how long I would continue my search before I give up. But fortunately, about 30 minutes later, I find baby Jesus, hidden behind some folders in the top drawer of the living room desk. Little baby Jesus never looked so good to me. I carefully place Him right where he belongs in the center of the manger scene, in the center of the Christmas story. Later that evening, I sit in the living room, drinking a cup of coffee and admiring the completed manger scene. I can feel myself growing quieter and more restful ... maybe more at peace. After all, I’ve found baby Jesus and Christmas is complete. BCR Senior Staff Writer Donna Barker can be reached at dbarker@bcrnews.com.

TO Letter THE Editor

National bird’s honor being destroyed ​T o the Editor, Friday, Dec. 6, 2013 — another day that will “live in infamy.” It’s been reported that on the day before the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, Dec. 7, 1941, the Obama Administration said it will give the OK for wind farm companies to kill or maim eagles for up to 30 years without penalty.

In 1789, George Washington became our nation’s first president and the American Bald Eagle became our country’s official bird. Almost 150 years later the American Bald Eagle was protected under the National Emblem Act of 1940. President John F. Kennedy later wrote, “The Founding Fathers made an appropriate choice when they selected the bald eagle as the emblem of the nation. The fierce beauty and proud inde-

a child. I held Cole, and we watched those snowflakes together — it helped me to see the wonder in them as I did my best to look at them through his eyes. I listened to the joy in my daughter’s voice and watched the happiness on her face as she talked to me about the house into which she and her family will soon be moving. She is so pleased that they will all be enjoying more indoor space and more outdoor space too. It was special to share that with her and take the time to

pendence of this great bird aptly symbolizes the strength and freedom of America.” The destruction of the symbol of our great country, the United States of America, is going to be allowed because of the greed of the wind energy industry (owned by China, Spain, Ireland and who knows what other countries), and the desire of the President to go “green.” I’ve really developed a strong distaste for that color.

Countless young Americans have died fighting to protect our nation, which has as its emblem this wonderful bird. I wonder what the veterans of World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War and the currently enlisted young men and women still fighting and being killed, might think about the Administration’s decision? Sue McGinn Tampico

listen and see that excitement. I thank Cole for helping me remember to observe and enjoy the simple things. I am trying, each day, Cole, to look at everything with the same wonder that you do. I hope I can continue to do that, that I can remember, as is said on one of the daytime talk shows, “Take time to enjoy the view.” Nita Wyatt of Wyanet can be reached at golfingfor2@ ymail.com.

Redeemer Lutheran donates quilts to Washington survivors PERU — On Dec. 7, Bill and Judy Kreeger from Washington, Ill., stopped by Redeemer Lutheran Church, LCMS, in Peru to pick up some quilts to give a little comfort to people who either lost their home completely or have to live elsewhere while their homes are rebuilt because of the Nov. 17 tornado that devastated so many homes in the Washington area. Judy is the secretary of Our Savior Lutheran Church, LCMS, in Washington. Our Savior had almost $1 million worth of damage to the church and parsonage. All of the cars in the parking lot as the Sunday service was underway when the tornado struck were

blown away. The pastor has to live elsewhere until the parsonage can be repaired. His Bible was blown away and he hasn’t found it. There were 300 volunteers at the church on Dec. 7 to help in the clean-up efforts and to start to rebuild. They are all overwhelmed at the enormous support that is coming their way but obviously traumatized by the experience they witnessed. The Kreeger daughter’s family was in the basement of their home in Washington and were safe, but when they came upstairs afterwards, their home was totally gone and also their two vehicles were blown away.

‘The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs’ On my ride to the Grace Theater to watch “The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs,” a quasiautobiographical search for truth in the technology business, I listened to my music on a secondhand iPod without a second thought — the ride home, however, was different. This piece, a one-man show by Mike Daisey and acted by Thomas Preece, follows the escapades of Daisey as he travels from California to China to fulfill his desire to really know the cost of his latest gadget. Daisey, a self proclaimed geek and Apple aficionado, intersperses historical content that gives a basis for which we the audience can begin to understand Jobs’s genius with findings from his visit to Shenzhen, the city where all of our stuff is made. During the sections describing his trip to China, we get a much darker look into the true cost of our latest gadget, or latest device, and we begin to learn in a little less comfortably what the money we spend truly helps to fund. Preece, the single actor and a first-time Festival 56 member, performed incredibly for his premiere role here in Princeton. While acting is not easy, being the only actor in a two-hour show provides a very unique and different set of challenges that Preece handled superbly. Using different voices, body language and props we are able to view entire conversations without any doubt of what is going on. The inten-

sity, which can only be described as taxing, grows over the course of the show and really drives the powerful message home. In a show like this, the tech side of the theater almost becomes a second actor, playing off of the actor and in a way, providing the other side of the theater coin. The sound and light cues of this show were built in such a way that they never overshadowed our actor, but played off him and added to his monologues brilliantly — whether through moving location for different stories or playing the strains of Bach in juxtaposition to the brilliant genius we find in Jobs himself. Along with the more traditional tech, director Georgia Mallory Guy made the choice to have some visual projections to add to the experience. What really makes this experience unique is the availability of these projections and the encouragement that we, the audience, have our smart devices out so that we can follow along, seeing some extra tidbits of knowledge that will help immures us and add to our experience. Another unique feature of this show is that following every show, there will be time for a talk back session led by Preece discussing the topic of the work. For me, this was a very powerful time as I got to process on a little more personal level. It is a heavy topic, and having the processing time was very meaningful to me. Due to language, the

Holiday show for young children at Festival 56 PRINCETON — For the very first time, Festival 56 will be offering a Theatre for Young Audiences production, “The Naughty List,” a holiday play designed especially for children ages 3-10. Performances are at 4 p.m. Dec. 17, 19 and 20, and at 2 p.m. Dec. 22. All shows take place at the Grace Performing Arts Center, 316 S. Main St. in Princeton. In the show, when one of Santa’s elves finds himself on the “naughty list,” he realizes that he has lost the meaning of Christmas and goes off in search

of it. Theatre for Young Audience productions are put on by a group of skilled performers and designers, but intended for children. This type of show is shorter than a full-length play. It has a fast pace and no intermission so as to better hold the attention of young minds. Playwright Laura Brigham was inspired to write “The Naughty List” because she wanted to create a play that could be enjoyed by her own young children. The show has lots of silly sight gags, and songs and dances, but it also touches lightly

on the issue of bullying and teaches about what it means to be a friend. General admission tickets are $13 (This is a special event not included in Festival 56 subscription packages.) For tickets, visit www.festival56.com or call the Festival 56 Box Office at 815-879-5656, ext. 11. The box office is open from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and an hour before each performance. The Grace Performing Arts Center is completely accessible and ample nearby parking is available.

Bobcats edge Lady Lions By Holli Rapp sports@bcrnews.com

Tigers fall in OT to Hubs By Dan Dwyer

LAMOILLE — Turnovers can be the demise of a young basketball team and it proved to be just that for the LaMoille/Ohio Lady Lions on Monday night against Little Ten foe Somonauk as the Bobcats won 38-37. A total of 32 turnovers for LaMoille (4-4 overall, 1-1 in Little Ten) in the game including five in the crucial fourth quarter proved to be the difference while Somonauk had 23 turnovers in the game. “Turnovers,” said LaMoille/Ohio coach Richard Gross, “you can’t throw the ball away. We rebounded well.” Both teams attempted to get a feel for each other as both teams struggled early on against the opposing team’s defense. With 4:16 left in the game and Somonauk leading 35-32, Ohio senior Vanessa Martinez rebounded her teammate’s missed shot and connected on her two free throws to cut the Bobcats lead to one. L/O’s Samantha Martinez had a breakaway layup that missed with 3:51 left that could have put her team up. With 3:10 left in the game, Somonauk junior Kylee Fall rebounded a missed teammates free throw attempt and they went into a stalling offense for the next two minutes before Natalie Rabe’s missed shot. Somonauk’s Rabe made one of two free throws to put her team up by two with 58.8 left in the game. LaMoille/Ohio had their chances on numerous shots with under a minute left but another turnover by the Lady Lions forced them to take a timeout and foul but instead of fouling it resulted in a Rabe layup to put the Lady Lions down by four with 27.1 left. With 7.1 left in the game, the Lions brought the ball up on one last attempt with Samatha Martinez connecting on a three point basket at the buzzer to cut the deficit to one. According to Coach Gross, he was impressed with the effort of Vanessa Martinez and Kaitlyn Hughes but mentioned his team needs to cut down on their turnovers after committing only 10 on Saturday against Rockford Jefferson. LaMoille struggled offensively outside of first year player senior Vanessa Martinez who had a doubledouble digits with 14 points and 10 rebounds while Shiela Browning had seven, Samantha Martinez five, Elizabeth Geuther five, Erin Bennett four and Hughes two points. Hughes, who was limited last season because of a knee injury, led the team with 12 rebounds. Somonauk was led by senior Rabe, who had 20 points.

PRINCETON — The Princeton Tigers and Rochelle Hubs were locked in a back and forth game that saw 18 lead changes and nine ties in a non-conference matchup Tuesday night at Prouty Gym. Princeton had a 50-39 deficit with 6:38 left in the fourth quarter when their man-to man defense began to force turnovers and frustrate the Rochelle offense as they went on a 20-9 run to finish out regulation. “We’ve had trouble closing out games,” said Rochelle coach Tim Thompson. “We have a young team, and we tried to work the ball a lot but they forced turnovers, and they started to hit baskets.” With 2.2 seconds left on the clock, Princeton ran an inbounds play from the sideline and getting lost in the mix was 5-11 senior guard J.J. Vaccaro, who popped out on the baseline and drained the game tying 3-pointer as time expired knotting the game at 59-59 going into overtime. “Vaccaro had been struggling on offense,” said Princeton coach Jesse Brandt. “It was big for him to hit that shot in the corner.” Princeton’s Garrett Duffin’s 13 points in the fourth quarter weren’t enough for the Tigers to outlast their former conference rival. The junior guard seemed as if nothing would stop him in the second half and overtime as 25 of his game high 37 points came in the second half and overtime. The Tigers fell just short as Rochelle’s Tyler Joyce banked his fifth three pointer of the game in with five seconds left in

Duffin was 13 for 21 from the field for a 61.9 percent shooting performance. “Duffin was sick and didn’t practice yesterday so he didn’t get the start tonight but when he got in he just took over the

game. He made steals, made some other great plays and hit big shots,” Brandt said, “He did a really great job.” Tyler Joyce added 21 points to lead the Hubs and Vaccaro added 21 points on 8 of 15 shooting for Princeton. Princeton jumped out

to an early 20-12 lead by 11 first quarter points by senior guard Vaccaro who seemed to be everywhere on the court making steals and scoring the first 5 points for Princeton. Rochelle came out

SPRING VALLEY — The 2013 Colmone Classic has been set up with some addition and subtraction. Both Plano and Sherrard exited the field after last year’s tournament. Quest Academy from Peoria has filled one spot. The other was to be Chicago Harper, which later withdrew from the tournament. The only interested party was Chicago Farra-

gut, who as a 3A regional finalist last year proved to not be a good fit for the 2A field. That led Hall to place its JV squad to round out this year’s tournament field. Defending champion Mendota (5-1) returns in the White Pool, joined by St. Bede, Bureau Valley and the Hall JV. The Red Pool is headed by perennial Colmone power Fieldcrest along with the host Red Devils, Quest Academy and Stark County. The hoopla tips-off Monday with St. Bede fac-

ing coach Mike Kilmartin’s alma mater and former team, Mendota at 5 p.m. The next game pits Fieldcrest vs. Stark County with Hall and Quest Academy in the nightcap at 8 p.m. The Bureau Valley Storm enter the competition at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday vs. Mendota. The first game of the night has St. Bede vs. the Hall JV at 5 p.m. Pool play continues Wednesday and Dec. 20 with the finals round to begin at 3 p.m. on Dec.

21. Mendota de-throned Fieldcrest 67-62 to cop its first Colmone Classic championship. Fieldcrest had won three straight, eight of the previous 10 tournaments and 11 overall. In other boys sites, Princeton and St. Bede will play at the Plano Christmas Classic Dec. 23-30, Bureau Valley will be at the Erie Warkins Memorial Classic Dec. 26-30, Hall will be at Marquette Dec. 26-30 and DePue will be at Princeville Dec. 28-29.

Trent Owens’ career comes full circle as he moves to Sprint Cup as a crew chief for 2014 season For those who were at Talladega, Ala., on May 4, 1975, the events that transpired were not to be forgotten. Even those who were just casual fans of the sport at that time were heartbroken over the death that day of 20-year-old Randy Owens. Owens was the brother-in-law of Richard Petty. His sister, Lynda, Richard’s wife, had helped raise him while their mother worked, and he was an eager member of the crew of Petty’s No. 43 cars. On Lap 141 of the Winston 500, Petty, in contention for the win, came down pit road with a fire in the left front of his car. As Owens attempted to use a pressurized water tank to help extinguish the flames, the tank exploded, sending Owens flying into the air and killing him. Petty, who jumped from his car and attempted to get help for Owens, summed up one of the saddest aspects of the incident in his comments to reporters that day. “He was just a kid and had those two little, bitty boys,” Petty said. Last week, the story came full circle when Trent Owens, the youngest of those little, bitty boys, was hired

as crew chief of the No. 43 Ford at Richard Petty Motorsports. The official release announcing the hiring of Owens didn’t even mention that Owens is the nephew of the team’s namesake. And Owens doesn’t bring up the subject unless he’s asked about it. But when he does talk about his family, it’s clear that he’s proud of the connection. Owens said that when he was hired to crew chief the car his father once worked on, it was a special moment. “When the opportunity came up, and then when the announcement was made, I was pretty emotional about it,” said Owens, who was just four months old when his father died. His brother, Travis, now the brake specialist for the No. 31 Chevrolet at Richard Childress Racing, was two at the time. The Owens brothers, who spent most of their younger years living in Darlington, S.C., remained close to Richard and Lynda Petty as they grew up. They went to races at Darlington, Rockingham and Martinsville with the Pettys. In the summertime, the Pettys would pick up the boys and take them to Daytona for the July Cup races. It was during one of those

By the time he was a teenager, Owens was spending his summers in North Carolina with the Pettys and working in the family race shop. “I made money for school for the next year,” he said. And his Aunt Lynda

as crew chief for Kyle Larson’s team in the Nationtold him stories of the father he never knew. “She made me well aware of my dad’s ambitions,” he said. Eddie Wood, a member of the Wood Brothers racing team of Stuart, Va., was about the same age as Randy Owens and knew him back in the day. Then as now, the Woods and the Pettys were big rivals, but also great friends. “Randy worked with (Petty Enterprises crew chief) Dale Inman, just like my brother Len and I worked with our Uncle Leonard,” Wood said. “Randy was a gogetter, and from what

I can tell, Trent is cut from the same cloth.” Trent Owens started his major league NASCAR career as a driver, running 12 races in the Camping World Truck Series before deciding that his true calling was on top of the pit box as a crew chief. He’s worked with a host of drivers over the years, winning five Nationwide Series races with five different drivers. He spent the past season working with Kyle Larson, and his move to the No. 43 and driver Aric Almirola is his first full-time foray into the elite Sprint Cup Series.

Owens said that his career as a crew chief has been helped by his driving experience and by working with various Sprint Cup drivers over the years. “Having driven in the past, I can understand quicker what a driver is telling me about the car,” he said. “And working with Cup drivers has taught me a lot in a hurry.” He said his goal is to try to make the No. 43 team into a consistent top-15 or top-10 outfit and to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup. “If we can be around the top 10 by the beginning of the summer, we’ve got a possibility of making the Chase,” he said. “And if we can run in the top five, we’ve got a chance to win a race.” One thing Owens knows for sure is that his new boss — his uncle — is not only NASCAR’s all-time win leader as a driver — with 200 victories — but also one of the most knowledgeable people in the garage today. “There’s no fooling him,” Owens said. “He’s sharp when it comes to race cars and the people that work on them. And he’s so good at life skills in general. “He’s a stern boss, but he’s a good boss. I’m happy to get this opportunity, and I’m looking forward to seeing what I can do with it.”

LCN employees celebrate new ownership By Lyle Ganther lganther@bcrnews.com

PRINCETON — The 275 employees of LCN Closers in Princeton on Wednesday celebrated their new ownership with games, prizes and a catered lunch. Allegion PLC, a $2 billion-a-year company with headquarters in Ireland, became a standalone, publicly-traded company on Dec. 2 following its spinoff from Ingersoll Rand, the former owner of LCN. “It is an exciting time for the LCN team,” said Barry Grover, a 12-year employee and process innovation manager.

Season celebration Lisa Aber, president of the Sheffield Historical Society, plays a Christmas hymn on the church organ at the historic St. Peter’s Danish Lutheran Church in Sheffield in preparation for Sunday’s annual community service hosted each year by the Sheffield Historical Society. This year’s program begins at 1 p.m. and includes, in part, caroling by Bunker Hill Church members from Buda and a non-denominational Christmas service, followed by refreshments and fellowship with Santa Claus at the Sheffield Community Center. New to this year’s program is a children’s story, “The Legend of the Candy Cane,” which will be read by the Rev. Brenda Lovick of Trinity Lutheran Church in Manlius. Also participating in Sunday’s Christmas service are the Rev. Jane Courtright of the United Church of Christ in Sheffield and Todd Krost of the Sheffield United Methodist Church. Songs and hymns will be led by Charles Gebeck who has played the organ for the program for years. The service is open for all denominations. Contact the Sheffield Historical Society at 815-454-2850 for additional details on the program and church availability for other functions. BCR photo/Andrew Fisher

What Bureau County United Way dollars go for … University of Illinois Extension The Bureau County United Way provides funding to support the 4-H program of the University of Illinois Extension. United Way believes education is the cornerstone of individual and community success. As a Bureau County United Way member agency, University of Illinois Extension is providing educational programs for youth, ages 5-19, to engage them in learning about themselves and the world around them and provide opportunities to develop mastery and practice generosity. University of Illinois Extension is grateful to the Bureau County United Way for helping to fund the 4-H program. The investment in preparing our youth and teens for their future and their service as tomorrow’s leaders is a benefit to all. Four-H is the largest youth program in the world. The 4-H program is research-based and targeted to meet local programming needs. Four-H provides youth with many opportunities to develop critical life skills. One need that has been identified through local needs assessment processes is for youth development programming to provide resources and education to help teens as they prepare to seek part-time jobs and consider the world of work and careers. On Aug. 1 and 2, the University of Illinois Extension piloted the first 4-H Professional Leadership Skills Certificate Workshop. This is the first certificate of several to be available through the 4-H Youth Leadership Certificate Program. The Professional Leadership Skills Certificate is backed by the University of Illinois Extension and endorses the work-related skills the participants developed during the workshop. At the two-day workshop University of Illinois Extension was proud to award the 13 individuals, ages 15-18, the Professional Leadership Skills Certificate after completing hands-on workforce development information sessions and activities, with both individual and team exercises, throughout the sessions. The Professional Leadership Skills Certificate workshop included the following sessions: Real Colors Personality Inventory — Participants determined their personality color temperament and incorporated their new self-awareness when making decisions and working in teams; Leadership — Participants explored the importance of leadership and worked to create their own professional pitch to answer the question, “Can you tell me about yourself?”; Professional Development — Participants defined professionalism and applied their definition to the workplace through attire, communication, appropriate use of social media and dining etiquette; and Workforce Preparation — Participants begin prepping for the workforce by creating a resume and cover letter and learning about the STAR Method for answering interviewing questions. Breanne Gilligan, Extension youth development educator, stated, “The workshop was a success. The participants had fun while learning invaluable workforce preparation skills. The 13 teen participants answered unanimously they would recommend this program to their friends and would

attend another workshop.” One participant, when asked if the information covered in the workshop relevant to their life responded, “Yes, it gave me a broader understanding of what I need to do to prepare myself for the future.” The Professional Leadership Skills Certificate Workshop not only provided the participants with needed workforce development tools, it also provided these young adults an opportunity to grow as a young professional and meet and work with other teens interested in building their leadership skills. Additional 4-H workshops for the series are under development focusing on career exploration, entrepreneurship and developing skills such as public speaking, team leadership and more. Understanding career options and how to move forward can be confusing when you do not have experience to base the decisions upon. This dedicated workforce training allows time to think about and prepare for the next steps for jobs and career planning as they unfold. Four-H is the largest youth program in the world, and its evidence–based success has been proven for more than 100 years. Four-H provides youth with critical life skills. Through 4-H clubs, youth gain a sense of belonging within their groups, independence through decision-making and responsibility, a spirit of generosity toward others; and a variety of opportunities to master skills and knowledge. Research shows that young people who participate in 4-H clubs do better in school, are more likely to see themselves going to college, are less likely to engage in risky behaviors, and they contribute more to their communities. Four-H programs also focus on learning employment skills, experiencing healthy relationships, becoming physically fit, thinking green and engaging in science. The local 4-H program offers many different opportunities for youth and family involvement. Bureau County has 4-H community clubs located across the county, programs at after-school sites, in-school programs, special events and workshops, and new Special Interest Clubs (SPIN) where youth meet to learn about a specific project or topic. New SPIN clubs include shooting sports clubs and after-school science clubs. For more information about 4-H, call the Bureau County Extension Office, 850 Thompson St., Princeton, at 815-875-2878. The Mission of University of Illinois Extension is to provide practical education you can trust to help people, businesses and communities solve problems, develop skills and build a better future. University of Illinois Extension provides equal opportunities in programs and employment. Visit our website at http://web.extension.illinois.edu/ blmp/. Call the Bureau County United Way at 815-8720821 for information on how you can lend a helping hand to those in need in Bureau County. Goal Pledged $120,000.00 $40,673.60

Holiday basics

Postal Service readies for busiest mailing day BEDFORD PARK — As the U.S. Postal Service prepares for Dec. 16, its busiest mailing day of the year, shoppers are scrambling to send their holiday gifts and cards in time for the holiday. The Postal Service expects 6 million customers to visit Post Offices nationwide. “This is the first holiday season that consumers and businesses can take advantage of the recently revamped Priority Mail, which now comes with free insurance, day-specific delivery and free tracking, says Peter Allen, Central Illinois District Manager. “With our low-cost Flat-Rate shipping product — which has no additional surcharges — the Postal Service anticipates that its highly popular Priority Mail offerings will be very attractive to

cost-conscious small businesses and holiday shippers. “We know that customers are looking for quick, easy and convenient shipping choices to ship their holiday gifts, and the Postal Service offers a great combination of value and convenience,” Allen said. “By going online, customers can take care of their shipping needs right from their home computer. You can print postage and shipping labels directly from your computer with Click-N-Ship. We offer discounts when you ship online. Plus, you can schedule free package pickup online as well, so you can take care of all of your shipping from your computer without ever leaving home.” Priority Mail Flat-Rate Boxes are available free at your local post office

in four different sizes, or can be ordered online at shop.usps.com, or by telephone at 1-800-STAMP-24. Postage, labels and customs forms can be printed online any time using usps. com/clicknship. Here is how to ship and send all your gifts in just a few quick steps! Confirm addresses. Print addresses clearly and in CAPS. Include complete ‘to’ and ‘from’ info. Check usps.com for the correct ZIP Code or use the ZIP Code tool on usps.com and the mobile app to find a ZIP Code quick — never guess. Choose the Right Box. Pick a strong and sturdy box, and tape it closed tightly. Be careful when reusing boxes — they can become weak. Place wrapped gift boxes inside a plain

larger box. Use a Priority Mail Flat Rate Box or holiday-themed ReadyPost option. Pack Delicately. Cushion contents to protect them during transportation, and wrap glass and other fragile items with extra newspaper or packing material. Be sure to label a box as ‘FRAGILE’ if it needs to be handled with extra care. Use popped popcorn in a bag as an eco-friendly cushion for fragile gifts. Remove all batteries from electronics. Remember to place an extra shipping label inside the box, so the item can be returned in case the box or label gets damaged. The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

To tip or not to tip: that is the holiday question (BPT) — When the holiday season arrives, so too does the enigma of holiday tipping. What’s supposed to be a sign of gratitude for great service, can quickly turn into stress as you try to decide if and how much you should tip the handyman, mail carrier, babysitter and many more. Lizzie Post, co-author of “Emily Post’s Etiquette, 18th edition” and great-great-granddaughter of Emily Post, knows the finer points of tipping during the holiday season, including who to tip, how much to tip and how to stay on budget doing so. Post has teamed with up Bank of America, and here are some of her suggestions: Make a list — The key to holiday tipping is to plan ahead so nobody gets overlooked. A tip is appropriate for people who have provided their services throughout the year, like your dog walker,

housekeeper, personal trainer, hairstylist, doorman and trash collector. Don’t forget to think of the entire family in the process, as well — it’s always good to recognize babysitters, day care providers and nannies. Scale appropriately — The general rule of thumb for holiday tipping is up to the cost of one instance of service. However, this does not ring true for everyone on your list. Individuals who provide service on a more regular basis, such as an au pair or housekeeper, may require additional recognition, such as one week’s pay. Some people who may appreciate a gift, but most likely cannot accept cash, include your child’s teacher, health care professionals and government employees, like your mail carrier. Express gratitude — It’s important to remember that above all else, holiday tipping

We would like to say...

Thanks!

is really holiday thanking, extending a courteous gesture as a result of service throughout the year. No matter how much or what you decide to give, it’s always important to offer your thanks with a handwritten note or holiday card. After all, it’s the thought and sentiment behind the gesture that matters most, not the gift itself. Consider these holiday tipping guidelines from Post: • Barber/hairstylist — cost of one salon visit or a gift. • Babysitter — one evening’s pay and a small gift. • Handyman — $15 to $40. • Au pair or live-in nanny — one week’s pay and a gift from your child(ren). • Garage attendants — $10 to $30 or a small gift. • Day care provider — $25 to $70 for each staff member or a gift. • Personal trainer — up to

the cost of one session or a gift. • Dog walker — up to one week’s pay or a gift. • Housekeeper/cleaner — up to the amount of one week’s pay and/or a small gift. • Personal caregiver — between one week to one

month’s salary or a gift. • Doorman — $15 to $80 cash or a gift. • Trash/recycling collectors — $10 to $30 each. • Pet groomer — up to the cost of one session or a gift. • Yard/garden worker — $20 to $50 cash or a gift.
